Dog Licenses

Why License Your Dog?

  • California State Law requires it.
  • It is your dog's ticket home... If your dog gets lost, we can contact you immediately and get your dog right home to you!
  • It lets us know your dog has a current rabies vaccination.
  • It tells the world "You are a responsible pet owner!" You took the time and spent the money to make sure your dog has current vaccination and a license and would be returned to you if lost.

Rabies Vaccination Requirements

The rabies vaccination is mandatory before the issuance of a new license. All new and renewal license applications require a copy of the rabies vaccination certificate issued by a veterinarian. The license is only valid during the period that the rabies vaccination is effective, so please check and make sure that the rabies vaccination has not expired.

Vaccination Information

Rabies, if untreated, is a fatal condition for both animals and humans alike. Rabies is still prevalent in Stanislaus County. State Law Mandates that all dogs over the age of 4 months must be vaccinated for rabies and owners must obtain a license to verify the immunization.

Proof of Spay or Neuter Required

If your pet is spayed or neutered, please submit a copy of the spay/neuter certificate from your veterinarian. We will also accept proof such as a veterinary bill detailing the spay or neuter surgery or a rabies vaccination certificate that indicates that an animal is spayed or neutered.

Fees

License Tag Replacement

The license tag is a permanent tag and shall be attached to the animal's collar and/or harness and be worn at all times. A new tag will NOT be issued during the renewal of a license UNLESS your license tag is lost or the writing becomes illegible. If you need to replace your tag, you may request it at a replacement cost of $1.

Late Fee

There is a penalty fee of $35.00 added to the above license fees for late licenses. A late license is one that is not renewed within 30 days after the animal turns four months of age, 30 days after acquiring animal or failing to license their dog(s) within 30 days of moving into the City of Turlock.

Senior Discount

We offer a senior citizen discount for those 65 years of age or older. We do require proof of age, such as a copy of a driver's license or any official document stating your identity and your age. The savings of 50% will be applied to licenses of altered animals only, which reside in your care.

Payment Types Accepted

We accept cash, check, money order, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
